WELCOME TO SPARK!!! Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time.
A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.
2. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
3. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family! *~ Paula *~

My name is Glenn and I have been on the site for about 2 weeks. I'm 33 years old.I have a wonderful wife and 2 beautiful daughters (Myrah is 2 yrs old and Isabelle is 7 days old!) I have been power-lifting and eating between 4000-6000 calories/day for 7+ years. It's time for a change! I have a herniated disc in my lower back. I am trying to avoid surgery at all costs. My chiropractor and doctor agree that if I can get my weight down to 200 lbs., it would relieve my back pain. I was up to 238 lbs. in March of this year. I lost 15 lbs. on my own, and I've lost 7 lbs. since I've joined the site. I have at least 18 to go, but I am confident that I will reach that milestone.
